As a general rule subsctibcrs
to the Review are prompt in
paying their subscriptions, but
there are quite a few who seem
to forget that it costs something
to print a paper, even a modest
effort like The Review. To tiie
latter we would make the request
that they liquidate iheir indebtedness as soon ai they can find it
convenient to do co. If they
owe two or three years nnd feel
thev cannot afford to pay it all
at the present time, surely they
can arrange to pay at least half
the amount, Tllis notice is for
all who are behind in ti e payment of their subscriptions.

Warfare and Insanity
Few Are Crazed By the Battles, According to Statistics
In lhc early clays of the war doleful predictions were heard that modern civilization with its debilitating
horrors of modern death dealing devices would drive thousands of soldiers mad, Men taken from peaceful
pursuits, whose chief hazard had been
iu flossing lhe streets, were suddenly sol down in an inferno of explosives, beset wiih the constant imminence of death in terrible (onus, de
piivetl of countless comforts and conveniences, racked iu mind night ami
day for months, and there seemed
every probability lhal thousands i.i-
decd would break under lhe unfamiliar and seemingly intolerable strain.
Uui lhc records do nol show it, Statistics t li us far prove lhal those fears
were tremendously exaggerated,
Dr. G. Dumas, who has treated all
ease*, of mental trouble In one ol the
French armies, says hi.* data, covering the lirsl sis months of lasl year,
agrees with iho reports of German
doctors regarding madness among
combatants, He finds lhc eases of
insanity caused dircclly or Indirectly
by thc war in Prance are quite as few
in proportion us those reporlcd In
Germany, and "Hers ihc figures as refutation of the theory of German spe
cialisls that lhc Teutonic nice has
greater nervous resistance than the
French or Laliu, The same conclusion is indicated by the Hriiish reports, li is doubled whether any
appreciable number of soldiers who
have broken down menially would
not have done so anyhow, even if
there had boon im war, Mosl of lho

urged lhal we musl purge our Empire life entirely ol llic German taint
and do il  luni.

Sir George's reference to neutrals,
which attracted most attention, and
coining from Canada's spokesman at
Inc Empire conference must greatly
influence lhc British Ministers, was
as follows:
"What of our attitude towards neutral countriesr That is a delicate
subject. How long is ibis Empire
going to lake off its hat and attune
Its ears to the least whisper that may
come as to sonic disadvantage that
will accrue lo a neutral country if
lhc Empires dares to fix up its home
affairs and choose between the Empire of today and that illimitable
Empire of the future if we arc true
lo ourselves?
"I.ven it it takes off some of your
profits from neutral trade, drop the
profit practise, sacrifice and call il
service. Work for ihe future and
you will have your own reward now,
while future generations will rise up
anil call you blessed.
"These neutral countries arc greal
and strong, but ihey have nol spent
an ounce of their blood nor a dollar
'of their money ill that terrible hell
of war, which on thousands of miles
has dashed against lhc sons of thc
Empire, leaving its long trail of fearful consequences for many a genera-
"Wc may well say to neutral countries in settling ibis momentous
question: 'Wc have lo reconstruct
ourselves. We must bc allowed to
say how lo do it. We will nol bc unreasonable with yon, but we must
be just lo our own.' "
Speaking of closer economic unity
for tho Empire, Sir George sard Englishmen who wore slill irec trailers
would bc jogged oul of some of their
notions some of Ihrsc days (laughter), and added: "I am not a free
trader, and speaking personally I
don't bold out the least hope in lhe
wide world that the Empire can today conic together on a basis of free
"It is time for lhc Empire lo consolidate itself with reference io trade,
commerce and production, and hammer oul quickly its policy for the
ful ure.
"At the Allied Economic Conference in Paris, al which I was a dele-
gale, Britain, with all her power, did
not speak for ihe Empire���could not
speak for it. How much stronger
the Empire would be if it had its defined policy to let lhe Empire treat
ilself and its-units a little more favorably than counlries that did not
own its Hag and also lo troal its allies on a more favorable basis than
"After all I've seen, I am absolutely astounded at thc power of the intelligent, effectual organization
which supports our bailie front.

So far as lhe future is concerned,

Defining a Deserter
Home Soldiers  Who Absent Themselves Equally Culpable With
Overseas Men
Tiie impression disseminated as
thc result of a news item published
generally ill Canadian papers from
Ottawa, that a soldier could not be
a deserter until his battalion went
overseas is vigorously contradicted
at the militia department,
It was staled that such is not the
ease and tha a soldier who absents
himself for a sufficient period without leave is a deserter whether his
battalion is overseas or at home.
Sonic misunderstanding also appears to havc arisen as regards llic
power of commanding officers of
units to sentence men to jail for being absent without leave. This has
been done in tlie Ottawa military district and other places as well. According to the militia department,
however, no commanding officer lias
such power. lie may give a soldier
28 days' detention for being absent
without leave, but cannot imprison
him. A magistrate must pass lhc
sentence. Since, the war broke out
special permission lias been given
magistrates lo Iry eases of absence
without leave.
It was also slated at lhe militia
department that the parents of
boys who have enlisted in the expeditionary forces who appear at the
last moment and claim their offspring will not be allowed lo do so in

New Work For Women
Building   Aeroplane    Engines   in   a
.  Factory in Scotland
Ail extremely interesting venture
is being launched iii Scotland in lhe
nature of a new profession for women. Al a place on the west coast
of Scotland a factory is lo bc buill
where work in lhc nature of the
building of aeroplane engine parts
will be undertaken, and when a sufficient nucleus of skilled women is
formed lhc whole engine will bc
built in llie works. Possibly after
lhc war engines for motors will be
pari of lhc work. The venture owes
its'origin to lhe fact lhat two of thc
directors of a well-known controlled
establishment havc been so impressed by thc work done by educated women that they arc prepared lo sink
$200,000 in a concern which will be
worked entirely by such women. Ordinary factory conditions will not
prevail. Thc work will bc run in
two shifts, night and day, each shift
comprising two periods of four hours
with breaks for meals, rest and technical instruction, Examinations will
be hold after tlio first six months, and
on these examinations will depend
thc money earned. It is probable
that the lowest rate will bc $5 a week
and the highest $1,250 a year. The
building will comprise, besides the
main workshop and office, mess-
rooms, recreation rooms, music
room, library and class rooms (or
technical instruction.

wagon is a profitable thing, and [minion while helping
the owner can make good money
by carrying goods aud parcels for
other people, but if he can develop
a selling business and turn that express wagon to account by carrying
his own goods to customers, it is
profitable for him to a far greater
extent. Within the Empire are
immense resources, at present
awaiting development, and pending
that stage, the test of the Empire
buys elsewhere. Tbe bulk of the
lumber shipped from this coast, and
mainly from Washington and Oregon, goes to Britisii Empire points
and if half of that trade were kept
within the Empire the population
of this province would receive the
greatest increase on record, while
our cities would, fill up and all classes of the community benefit.
While American mills ure prospering on orders from tbe British Empire, the 11 C. mills are shut out
from American possession;: by the
tariff, We give this instance as
one of iii3.ny others which the
Commission Will closely examine,
aud do its best to correct.
Tbe same idea is apparently stir-
rlng the Au tralians, for the Commonwealth is sending a Commission
t'.i the Stales and Canada to investigate certain industries, among them
the lumber industry, Tbe Australian market for lumber alone, if
it were supplied from 15. C. instead of mainly from the .States,
would keep our mills going night
and day. from January to December As Sir George Foster said
the other day, "Let us stop quib-
bling," with such vast possibilities
before us, which only need tacking
to be secured.
Tn these days of strenuous endeavor there is such n thing as excessive modesty. As we have only
hinted before, the possession of a
weekly paper such as the " Review''
is an asset to Courtenay, aud gives
it a place on the map, besides conferring an amount of standing. A
municipality \-ith_a weekly paper
is not a deatl place, Every asset,
however, should be accurded support of the fullest kind, and it
would be encouraging if   more of

Notes By The Way
'' 111 tie ruin talk is bad for the individual and for the community
alike, creating and preserving a
feeling that discourages and deadens, interfering with business al-

suffered much front "blue ruin"

since tbe Dominion as a whole has
received similar attentions, But

Deposits in Canadian batiks, Aug

they were a year ago. They total

To the first Canadian war   loan, '

Victoria,   and   New   Westminster,
the sum of $3,355.600.   this   vear,

New Peace River  Pamphlet
1 l\i ��� I)',, 1 I'tnieut ul the Interior
a Ol tawa, has jusl issued, through
its Railway Lauds Branch, a very
comprehensive pamphlet dealing
I wilh thai new Mecca of Uie land-
seeker, the Peace River country,
! Wlnl* a few pioneer settlers have
I from time to time penetrated this
1 pori ion of Northern Canada, it lias
only been within the past few years
that it Ins been possible to regard
'the great Peace River District as
1 within the reach of our home seeker, The alniosl insurmountable
difficulty in taking in supplies and '
, machinery 1 and the corresponding
I rusk of marketing the crop render- j
I ed this fertile area of Canada's '
hinterland a veritable 'terra incognita.' !
While, a.s has been said, but few |
have explored tllis district, many
, will be surprised to learn that so
jlong ago as 1H7O. grain from llie
! Peace River captured thc trophy in
j competition wiili the worltl at the
Centennial Kxposition in Philadelphia.
This publication   deals with  ali
the subjects which   naturally   suggest themselves the average inquirer,   Under the headings of   Afrrb
.culture, Timber,   Minerals,  Came
and Transportation  tbe   pamphlet
gives a mass of information.    Climate and rainfall are   also  treated
.of.   Numerous extracts are given
' from the reports of well known explorers   and   scientists   who  have
��� visited the country, dating from the
; beginning of the last ceulut'V down
to tbe   present dav.   There   is   a
consensus of opinion  among  these
authorities as to the adaptability
of the country to the growth of all
grains and root crops.    The   great
] amount of sunshine which   obtains
in these northern latitudes  rentiers
! vegetation both rapid   and   luxuriant.
! In tlie Peace River districts the
seasons change very quickly, so
j that as soon as the snow passes the
ground is ready for seeding, The
soil in some places consists of a
rich black loan. In others it varied
from a blue clay with a too soil of
sandy loam, from two to six inches
lo a sandy loam, much desised by
wheat growers.
Vegetables attain a large si/.e. j
During a large part of the winter]
season cattle and horses may re-1
main outdoors.
It is a country adapted both to
mixed farming and ranching.

Movement Started to Establish
Branches in Western Provinces
A movement was started in Winnipeg this week which, if it materializes, is expected to be of great assistance iu regulating ihe labor market iu Western Canada, As set forth
in a resolution adoplcd al a meeting
held at the Industrial bureau, lhc objects of the proposed organization
are, briefly, lo secure legislation in
the ihree prairie provinces lhat will
make il an offence lo charge a fee
for giving or securing employment
or for introducing anyone for lhe
purpose of scenting work; ami lo establish iu Winnipeg, Brandon. Moose
Jaw, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton
and Lethbrldge fully equipped labor
exchanges, each province bearing llic
expense of maintaining iis own exchange, ami lhal lhe city council,
drain Growers' Association, and
Trades ami Labor Council in each
eily be invited lo appoint iwo of
llieir number lo form a local ad
ory   coininiltiT.
11   is also  proposed  thai  one cen .
Ir.il ollice be maintained at Winnipeg,]
Rcgina ami Edmonton, which shall he!
responsible    for all  exchanges,    and
lhat the    superintendence    shall    be
under a commission of six members,
onc  appointed  by  each  of  lhe  three
governments anel one by the Trades
ami  Labor Councils of each province,
such commission to have full power
to appoint    all officers    of the local
antl central exchanges.
The gentlemen present al lhe
meeting were: Thomas Molloy, of
lhe department of labor, Saskatchewan; Aid. II. J. liaillic, Saskatoon;
R, .1. Daley, assistant publicity commissioner, Alberta; Commissioner \V.

chief relief officer, Winnipeg; Louis
Kou, Manitoba immigration commissioner; A. Macnamara, labor department, Manitoba; R. A. Rigg, M.l'.P.;
A. VV. Puttee and .1. II. T. Pall-.
Thc labor organizations will take
the proposal up ill the three provinces, and a general meeting will
probably be called sonic time during
the coining winter, when full consideration will lie giceu the question by

Two weeks ago Saturday, a large
panther took a five weeks old pig
from Sam McGinipsey, and ran up
a tree with it in his mouth, The
old pig kept him up the tree for a
timei, while Sam ran for his rifle,
but the beast got away. However
lie came back on Monday morning
when Sam and his elogs chased him
Up ;i tree and be soon despatched
him with a ri lie shot. He weighed
114 pounds.
Some mischievous person has
pushed the tolling tope of the bell
on the Presbyterian church up out
of sight. The rope usually hangs
outside tbe door, and was placed
there for the purpose of a fire alarm
These 'funny stunts" are gettingl
altogether too common as tlie per-1
petrators will find out one day.
A lew nights ago someone un-
screwed Ihe whistle on theCondeti*
sory and hid it in the gutter. This
may have been intended as au
election joke, but wouid have proved a serious affair had there been a
fire at the factory.
